Amanda McQuade Crawford’s Yeast Killing Soup

This soup provides a great addition to a cleanse, and aids in killing yeast in the body. Preparing the soup with the onion skin is beneficial because the skin contains most of the anti-candida properties. The ground cloves also increase the anti-yeast bacteria.


  • 2 onions (with skin)
  • 4-6 cloves of Garlic
  • 4 cups of water
  • Pinch of thyme
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Pinch of ground black pepper
  • Half a pinch of ground cloves

Step 1: Add 4 cups of water to a saucepan. Place onions and garlic in water, and bring to a boil.

Step 2: Lower heat so soup is simmering. Now you can add any additional vegetables and cook until vegetables are tender.

Step 3: Once the soup is ready add a thyme, sea salt, ground black pepper, and cloves. Drink a cup hot or cold as needed (1-3 times a day)

Before serving: Remove onion skins
